than the united states. 75% of all power is commanded by heavy industrials, as opposed to here in the united states for example where it's only 30%. in china it's unique in china compared to anywhere else in the world and historically when you looked at power growth it was growing faster than gdp so if power growth was slowing you were worried about overall gdp. now what we've got on the screen is showing you, if you look at growth by sector the growth has fallen off in the major industrial sector, right, went from 12% a year ago to growth of only 3% year-to-date so far when you look at the left-hand side of the screen but in services, has it fallen off the growth, yes. residential, it's actually climbed, so they say you shouldn't necessarily be worried about the decline in growth of industrial power demand because it's being more and more offset by what is a change in the chinese economy but we frequently hear jim chanos talking about this, the ceo of international paper when he was on, when we look at electricity demand we think china is growing at 2%. the question is whether

. we only have one chief executive officer in the united states, that's the president of the united states. the president has the ability to command time from all the networks and all the other outlets on request. the president has to use the bully pulpit, whoever the president is, to make this case to the american people and then the people have to put pressure on senators and members of the house to work with the president to use this ticking bomb. >> that's a pretty tall order. >> it can happen and we need political reforms, too. we need redistricting reform, integrated and open primaries, we need campaign finance reform, we need lobbying reform, we need term limits. >> the american public is unhappy with the way things are going but they have very solid ideas about what they would like to see done. you've been doing this for a long time. is it back to 2007? i want to say it was before the financial crisis hit. >> 2005 is when i, pardon me, 2003 is when i blew the whistle that washington was out of touch and out of control. 2005 is when i started going on the road. >> so what hav
in the united states down ten points, the cac a little bit stronger, and the ibex up 0.9%. we had comments from mario draghi, reaffirming really how this bump outright monetary transactions may take place. what was interesting was reiterating how you stop it effectively, that they would launch it for a couple of months and then if there was a review program that went in to see how they were doing, they would then stop it before potentially restarting again. it all sounds rather difficult in terms of the access. as we focus on angela merck until greece, the pictures you've been showing and you'll be going out there this morning this morning talking to mr. papa constantinos, i asked him the debts in greece do not stack up so surely we need larger debt forgiveness. this is what he had to say. >> clearly the numbers are not viable and clearly something would have to be done and this would be done by the official sector. >> by the official sector he means the likes of the institutions and especially the ecb. he thought one of the ways is 50 billion for the bank bailouts could be taken off the table

-elected four years later, will drive the discussion for the president of the united states. >> i differ a little bit with that. i do think there's the possibility that as a collective group, 536 independent contractors, that they don't have the collective wisdom to kick the can down the road at a minimum. i worry they could go off. i do agree that no matter who wins, this problem's still there. >> we have to leave it there. thank you for coming in. rising above and -- >> keep giving us updates on this because we're happy with your progress. >> the more you talk about it, the greater the chance we get something done. >> thank you for coming in. >>> stocks wiping out early gains yesterday. weak corporate guidance hit equities. we'll get an outlook for today. if you like me and love me, you will love chatting me up. make my day. ask me about my hair, dyed, fake, weave -- >> or your underwear. >> no, some ladies don't like that. >> we don't either. >> you don't either? >> send in a comment about that picture. >> what's wrong with it? it's manly. i'll be answering comment, questions and more
at that. that's not just political talking point. you're talking about the president of the united states spending millions of dollars and thousands of hours preparing these budgets that are so unserious when we're facing the financial problems we're facing, there's not a member of his own party willing to vote for it. the problem is, his only solution is increasing taxes on the productive sector. the proposals they put forward. for example, the buffett rule would raise $5 billion, that pays for 11 hours worth of spending. the more aggressive one the democrats put forward would raise about $67 billion to cover a $1.1 trillion -- you're taking a risk at harming economic growth, and that's what you need to concentrate on. you've got to grow your economy. >> it is weird, when i mention, they figure you've got to start somewhere. and i go, but you understand how they always say, no, you can't possibly raise taxes on $250,000 and below because it would hurt the economy. but they seem very comfortable that $250,000 and above. >> the investment decisions to make those capital expenditures. >> yo
. >> -- there is no question that the united states is the world leader. and so i think as we look ahead, there's plenty of stuff and we'll come back to it in a minute that we've got to work through. but if we can keep doing the kind of thing -- look, it was government that brought you the lewis and clark expedition in the west. it was government that brought you the transcontinental railroad, the internet had its roots in a basic research program. if we don't do the crazy thing and slash it to the bone, if we recognize that we got to make -- we got to address the budget deficit and we will address the budget deficit, but we got to address the r&d deficit, we got to address the maintenance deficit and we got to address the education deficit. we address all those deficits, we have huge potential over the next 10 to 20 years. and growth is the best way to prepare for an aging society. it's the best way to impact on what's going to happen to budgets. and that's why i think this question of whether we have a balanced strategy or an anti-government strategy is so important going forward. >> but here's the on
to see what happens here in the united states with these numbers. do you have that news coming from the spanish finance minister. at this point, the ftse, france, german dax all indicated up by less than 1%. in asia overnight again, this is the last day that the chinese markets are closed for that one day holiday that lasted a week. right now the nikkei closed up by about 31 points. sensex down by close to 140 points. oil prices up by another $12.84. so back at $90.98. an awful lot of volatility. ten year note yielding 1.679%, that yield creeping slightly higher. the dollar if we take a look, you'll see it is up again the euro. it's up against the swiss franc, down against the yen, but the euro trading at 1.30. so first time i've seen above 1.30 in quite a while 37 gold price which is have been climbing ever higher, to this point just down slightly. $1791.60. >> william congry, died 1729, a play wright from england, wrote probably his most famous -- one of his most famous plays, the mourning bride. 1697. music has charmed to sooth a savage breast. the first line of the play. it is a
, but there is no solution to the fiscal problems the united states of america is facing without at least some contribution from increased revenues. the math doesn't work. so you have to have compromising for forward and that's what we need to see. >> under the current tax system, we had 18% and 19% revenue in 2006 and 2007 under the current tax structure. >> okay. what's the point? >> so you don't necessarily need to raise taxes to get back to that revenue level. reason we're at 15% is because of the recession. >> joe, there is no way to balance -- >> are you living in minnesota now and all this is seeping in to your -- >> what was that, will there is no way for to what? >> there is no way to close the gap purely with spending cuts. you have to address entitlements and you have to raise revenues. and that's what we need congress to do. the problem is that nobody's doing it. i've been going around the country talking about my book which by the way is about steward ship, which means manning up and taking responsibility for fixing today's problems for the sake of future generations. we haven't done that. >>

for months. look i ran for president of the united states. i happen to believe when you run for president what you say to the american people matters. evidently mitt romney doesn't believe that. you can say anything. you can etch-a-sketch your way to the presidency. he came in last night with cliff notes foreign policy. he had sort of a wikipedia approach to name a few places, say the taliban are in pakistan, talk about mali and the al qaeda there but didn't have policy recipes that were different and didn't have policy recipes so he agrees with the president. i think it was a shocking display and i think that's why americans overwhelmingly said we have a commander in chief who understands how to get the job done and this is not the time to change. >> senator, there was one remark that the president made that has some people raising eyebrows today. he would not allow the sequester to happen, and the white house has tried to suggest that he was not making news but a lot of other people confused because it sounded like news. >> i think the president has made it clear that he wants to solve
